The Alaska Run For Women (AKRFW) took place on June 8. On that sunny day, Team Chugach rallied to take first place for largest team with 257 members, and we were recognized with the award for the single largest-team donation at more than $12,600. Chugach has won first-place awards in these categories four years in a row, and over the past six years, we’ve raised $75,000 for cancer support and prevention!

But the most incredible award—the one we’re most proud of—was for our seven survivors, which garnered the award for the most survivors on a single team. At the end of the day, that’s what our AKRFW campaign is all about, supporting the people who are battling cancer and celebrating those who have survived.

The generosity of our business partners, our families and friends made this possible, but most of all, the participation and contributions of our employees allowed us to shine in the sun. So another award and a huge THANK YOU are in order!

Chugach Executive Vice President and CFO Angie Astle has been one of the spearheads of Chugach’s involvement since the company first started participating in this event, “We are passionate about our Chugach family and our community. What began over a decade ago as a way to get healthy and get involved has since grown into a passion project to support the amazing women in all our lives that have experienced the devastation of breast cancer,” she said. “Every year we hear the stories of spouses and significant others, sisters, mothers, coworkers and friends that have been affected. Fighting cancer is lonely, but we’re a family at Chugach and we support one another. What better way to send a message than to join the team and kick the butt of cancer!”

By living up by our Core Behaviors, the Chugach community has made Chugach a partner and a workplace of choice. Simply put, the Chugach community builds community, and we are doing our part to make the world a better a place.
